Weight control is not an activity that can be carried out in a day. For insights on losing weight and keeping it off ; below are some habits you need to develop to lose at least 30lb and keep the pounds off with these new habits.
1. OPTING OUT OF DIETS
Thinking of what you eat to lose weight as a diet can lead to going off the diet when you hit goal weight. Successful losers tend to keep the weight off as they deliberately opt out of diet.
2. KEEPING CALORIES DOWN
The bottom line is that weight control is about calories balance. Eat too many calories and the pound will come back on. Most weight losers are always advised to maintain the small portions, eating more slowly and choosing lower- calorie preparation method.
3. WEIGHING REGULARLY
Weighing yourself regularly is a good way to stay accountable. It can also catch weight regain early so it does not get out of control. Weighing can help you stay on track.
4. LOGGING FOOD
Monitoring food intake can also give you an honest assessment of what you have been eating, since it is easy to forget when you think about it later, exactly what you eat.
Report has it that 94% of successful weight losers increase their physical ability while losing weight. After hitting goal, exercise stayed high, with 9 out of 10 reporting doing at least 1 hour of exercise a day.
6. LIMITING TELEVISION TIME
Where do these people get the time to exercise so much? It might be from keeping their television time down. This habit is one the surest ways to have absolute focus for weight loss.
7. GETTING SUPPORT
Support systems are just as important for maintaining weight as they are needed for losing weight. Family members and friends can be helpful in this area.
8. BEING REALISTIC
A realistic long- term weight maintenance plan is one that you can follow long term. It needs to include foods you enjoy and afford and prepare, and allow for a life’s special events, such as nights out with family or anything else that is important to you.
9. LIMITING FAT
A low-fat diet tends to be more filling than high-fat diet because fat has more than twice as many calories per gram as protein and carbohydrates. So many low fat foods have fewer calories in a larger serving size than high-fat foods.
10. PLANNING AHEAD:
Following a routine can help you keep the weight off because it allows you to plan for healthy eating and adequate activity.
